Yes, Charles Bukowski’s gravestone really does say ‘Don’t Try’

Charles Bukowski was a poet, poet, and short story writer, who penned thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels. He died in 1994, but not before leaving us with one mystery. On his gravestone were his name (duh), dates of birth and death, an icon of a boxer, and two simple but dumbfounding words, Don’t Try.

Don’t Try, as in don’t try your best? Or maybe don’t try in the context of Yoda’s “Do. Or do not. There is no try”? To get to the bottom of this mystery, check out the super sleuthing over at Open Culture.
